When Sam's classmates take turns talking about which holiday they celebrate, Sam becomes very nervous. Some people celebrate Christmas and some people celebrate Hanukkah. But Sam celebrates both!

Written by a child psychologist, My Two Holidays offers comforting explanations that shine a light on how special it can be to celebrate two treasured holidays instead of one!

Danielle Novack is a clinical psychologist and My Two Holidays is her first children's book. She lives in New York City. Phyllis Harris has illustrated many books for children, including Kate's Surprise. She lives with her family in Kansas City, Missouri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book! I bought this book to my kids, as they had so many questions about Christmas while we are celebrating Hanuka. My kids loved the book and now they see that they are not alone in this situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sam is preparing for the holidays, decorating his Christmas tree and polishing his Menorah. But at school as child after child shares their story about their holiday tradition, Sam becomes confused and embarrassed, because all the other children only have one holiday and he has two. That night he shares what happened to with his mother, and she explains that his family celebrates two traditions. The next day at school Sam shares about having two traditions and the other kids think that is cool. The book is wonderfully written and charmingly illustrated. It presents both traditions with respect and appreciation. It will be a good book to help your children understand another tradition or maybe their own mixed traditions.
